Visit Sorrento and Pompeii from Rome

No trip to Italy is complete without a visit to Pompeii. This luxury Mercedes van tour from Rome shows you a city immortalized by a volcanic eruption, followed by a leisurely lunch and free time in beautiful Sorrento.

Meet your driver at a convenient meeting point in the heart of Rome (details provided following reservation, or ask us for hotel pickup if your hotel is centrally located). Once seated comfortably, we depart for Pompeii, the once prosperous Roman city that met its fate in October AD 79, when Mt. Vesuvius erupted and the entire surrounding area and population were engulfed with burning pyroclastic flow and covered in ash.

You will see moments of terror frozen in time, death postures and ruins unchanged from almost two millennia ago. Your expert archaeologist guide walks you down the long and ancient streets, where perfectly conserved ancient bakeries, shops, stalls, private and communal residences, public baths and brothels remain. See plaster casts of the unfortunate Pompeiians who were immortalized on that tragic day.

Upon conclusion of the guided tour in Pompeii, we make our way to Sorrento, an exceptionally beautiful seaside town known as the “Gateway to the Amalfi Coast”. Enjoy once-in-a-lifetime views of the Tyrrhenian Sea and picture-perfect towns nestled into steep white limestone cliffs. Along the way, your driver will recommend a stop for lunch one of the wonderful local pizzerias in the birthplace of true Italian pizza.

During your free time in Sorrento be sure to stop at one of the many botteghe and sample Limoncello, a world-renowned specialty liquor made by local artisans from the organic lemons that can only be harvested in this region. You can purchase a bottle or two to take home (or have it shipped) before enjoying a bite to eat and ample time to wander around the shops and scenic views of Sorrento. As your afternoon winds down, you join your driver once again for the return trip to Rome.
